Three years ago...

I lost my mom.
She was only 79 - lung cancer.  Life has not been the same, especially this past year, which has been harder than the first two.  I don't know why that is.  She actually left this world on November 28, but for me it will always be today, the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  Some day, we will meet again.

On a much lighter note, here is a quilt she made back in the late '70s/early '80s.  I think it's the only one she ever made.

  1. It is extra hard when something like that happens near a holiday.

    She left behind many wonderful memories and a beautiful quilt.

  2. I love the fact that you honor your Mom by quilting. God bless you extra today, Jodi! I'm sending a hug along, and hope this year is a good one for happy memories.

  3. I can understand your pain. I lost my 72 year-old mother to non-Hodgkins lymphoma in December 2002. The mourning never ends; it only lessens. Bless you.

  4. I'm sorry about your mum. May you remember the lovely times with the sadness. I definitely think you will see her again. What a good job she did on that quilt, especially for being her only one.

  5. I don't think you ever get over the loss of your Mother, life is just never the same. But she would want you to enjoy each and every second you have on this earth until she see's you again. Hugs to you today :)

  6. Bet your mom would be proud. Love her quilt.

  7. Hugs to you as you remember your mom. How nice to have her quilt.

    Your bento box quilt is just gorgeous. It's very inspirational, especially since I'm a big fan of scraps.


I love to hear from you!
